Luisa Lambri photographs the interior details of modernist buildings, whose mostly vacant, peripheral spaces are framed by fragments of light and the passage of time. Lambri’s methodology draws attention to the viewer’s immediate perceptions and is in clear contrast to the established practices of modernist architectural photography, which conflates flawless exteriors with the modern ethos of progress and innovation. Lambri’s approach has affinities with two other Los-Angeles artists—Catherine Opie and James Welling—who are also included in the Kadist Collection. Lambri sees her images as a form of self-portraiture that elaborates on the profound psychological and emotional responses that architectural spaces elicit from their inhabitants: While she is photographing a house, she is also photographing herself being there. Lambri travels extensively to capture the physical topologies of work by Alvar Aalto, Le Corbusier, Louis Kahn, among many others.
